Hi. My Name is Dawnya. I am a full time mother to 7 children ranging from 16 months to 22 years, 5 girls and 2 boys. We are a blended family and have custody of all of our children. I have been married for 3 years. Being part of a big blended family has its joys and also it's difficulties. Even though we have yours, mine and ours, I consider each child unique, special and mine! We don't use terms like "Step Mom or "half brother". We just consider each of us family. We try hard to develop lasting relationships by working together and spending time with one another. I hope you will join me as I explore different ideas that our family tries.
